Hey,... that is the difference between Spaniards and Mexicans.Oh....geeesh..! mexibaboso youth have enough troubles without hating their abuelos because they passed on the burro and baboso gene...and now the author of the article wants mexibabosos to believe they have the " Desert Sand Flea Gene " mexibabosos have enough trouble improving their image.....
Spaniards hate the cultural and genetic legacy of Moors and even get violent if one talks about it.
On the other hand, we Mexicans have no problem to accept it... along with our Amerindian (i.e. "Asian"), European and other roots.
Maybe the "Mojados" will feel it as a "secret to be kept" to supposedly didn't attract more fire from rightwing groups in the USA.
But we, Mexicans in México, love our intellectual liberty, to cherish and awe to our Past. And we don't care two sh*ts what anybody else think about it.
But actually, the connection Mexico-Arabs, recent or ancient, is not the most interesting. I think the most interesting is the connection Mexicans-Filipinos, in which Mexicans are responsible for a great deal of Filipino culture... and we modern Mexicans barely know anything about it. That is really surprising and interesting.
